    Vz 1932 ( BRNO) REPUBLICA PERUANA

    I have not been able to identify the action and the information I have read is limited. What the Mauser has is:

    *along the action

    Cs. ZBROJOVKA AKC. SPDLVBRNE Serial # 043XX
    MODEL 1932



    * on the ring

    Crest is light and some parts are not easily readable.
    " REPUBLICA PERUANA is bold and readable.

    With some help, I have found that Peru purchased from Brno a few ( #'s not known ) VZ32 Short Rifles that are loosely based upon the Czechicon VZ 16/33, but "SUBJECT TO PERUVIAN NEEDS AND DESIRES"
    In the late 1930's Peru purchased an indeterminate # of short rifles and designated them : Peruvianicon Model 1935. this being the standard export model with the exception that it has a reversed safety.

    source: Military Rifles of the World, MAUSER, fourth edition,
    Robert W. D. Ball,
    Gun Digest Books
    LCC# 2006930832

    So it would seem that the shroud, sleeve lock safety are of the Model 1935 and cocking piece is yet to be determined. (I am of the mindset that it also is a model 1935.)

    Thank you !
